Math and Statistic Software




Mathematica (also known as Wolfram Mathematica) is a symbolic mathematical computation program, sometimes called a computer algebra program, used in many scientific, engineering, mathematical, and computing fields. The Wolfram Language is the programming language used in Mathematica. Mathematica extended the High Performance Computing  capability with the introduction of packed arrays (version 4, 1999) and sparse matrices (version 5, 2003). The multi-threading support was added in Version 5.2 (2005). In 2002, gridMathematica was introduced to allow user level parallel programming on heterogeneous clusters and multiprocessor systems. Support for CUDA and OpenCL GPU hardware was added in 2010.

Mathematica is available on Windows, Linux and Mac OS.



MATLAB (matrix laboratory) is a multi-paradigm numerical computing environment and fourth-generation programming language. A proprietary programming language developed by MathWorks, MATLAB allows matrix manipulations, plotting of functions and data, implementation of algorithms, creation of user interfaces, and interfacing with programs written in other languages, including C, C++, Java, Fortran and Python.

Like many other programming languages, MATLAB has a wide variety of extensions and program libraries available for use in a diverse field of applications. These libraries called toolboxes in MATLAB range from programs that make common calculations simpler to program sets that allow MATLAB to calculate results in completely different ways. Each tool box is integrated with the main MATLAB interface and provides libraries of default functions that can be used for a variety of applications.

MatLab is available on Windows, Linux and Mac OS.

SPSS is a software package used for statistical analysis. It was originally produced by SPSS Inc., and it was acquired by IBM in 2009. The current versions (2015) are officially named IBM SPSS Statistics. SPSS is a widely used program for statistical analysis in social science. It is also used by market researchers, health researchers, survey companies, government, education researchers, marketing organizations, data miners,[3] and others.

SPSS is available on Linux, Windows, and Mac OS.
